    I have been working at TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security and very low pressure .... Good home work balance.

    Cons

    Very difficult place to work, silos, politics, resistance to change, extremely behind the times, people are not very knowledgeable with very little motivation and knowledge, many people have started and finish their careers there and have no idea how the real world works and functions ...... Extremely ignorant and no willingness to take their heads out of the sand. If you're coming here to make a difference .... Don't bother .... The brass will sufficate you to death. Probably zero chance of career advancement .... Been here 10 years .... Well educated and current Certifications and still not able to advance .....
